Happy Holidays!

November and December have been flying by!  The month of November our Unit of Study was “The Needs of People.”  We held a food drive, and ended the unit with our annual visit to Manna Food Bank.  What an awesome way to celebrate Thanksgiving!

December began with a wonderful field trip to hear/see a performance of “Peter and the Wolf” by the Blue Ridge Orchestra….they were amazing, and the children enjoyed it very much!  Then today we went to the Grove Park Inn to see the gingerbread houses….boy, they looked good enough to eat!  Luckily, one of our Moms made gingerbread cookies for us to enjoy!

Our last day of school is Friday, December 19th, which is an early dismissal day (12:30pm).  School will resume from our Winter Break on January 5, 2015.  We hope everyone has a safe and restful break.100_0994

Happy Fall – The Month of October

We have had a wonderful month welcoming in the cooler Fall weather.  Our Unit of Study this month has been “Birds”, and we’ve really enjoyed learning all about our fine feathered friends!  Our Field Trip this month will be to the Bird Sanctuary in North Asheville on Wednesday, October 29th – which is also Miss Julia’s Birthday!  Class Picture Day went very well yesterday, and Miss Diane said that the proofs should be back in a couple of weeks – in time to get photos by the Holidays.  And, of course,
